I grew up with shortbread, Irish people are all over it and my family was no exception. My nana made great shortbread and my mom makes tasty shortbread cookies. There was never chocolate or espresso in our shortbread and now I am thinking perhaps we were missing out. I loved these cookies. I baked them up tonight and promptly ate four. Needless to say I am taking them to work tomorrow and I am vowing not to eat any more. Poor S. likely won’t get a taste test, poor guy.
